    I picked a nice Champion at a fair price, but I need more weight, anyone have a suggestion? I could make a lever setup-up but just want a weight if around.

    W8HOG Bug Zapper. About 15 bucks on Ebay.

    Found those at Home Depot, they are used on a square, come in a two pack.:)

    Sometimes I just go there and wander around looking at all kinds of things in hopes I may come up with an idea. It often works!

    I know, I can't just go to Home Depot, it's an expedition, even worse it's real close!

    Try to stay out of the tool aisles! There is always something neat to spend money on that you don't really need!!

    I know, I inherited all my dad's woodworking tools and mostly just paid for storage or moved/tripped over them for 10 years. If I don't have it I rent it!

    Very nice, and I have one for my original, the Champion has the flat bar with square weights. I'm looking for a small right angle bracket and a matching plate to make a swing arm, then I'll attach a weight to that.

    Try a clothes line clamp. Clamp it on the locking screw.
